Artificial Intelligence

Artificial Intelligence is part of the prioritised research area Intelligent Sensor Systems at Mälardalen University. We are well known for our research in artificial intelligence and learning systems, and we cooperate with other world-leading groups within the field.

Most things around us in our daily lives contain computers and programmes, such as your MP3 player, cars, mobile phones or TV. What is happening today is that intelligence is increasing at a rapid rate: the MP3 player is learning what music we like and finds good music for us, the car brakes and swerves if a child runs out into the road, the TV suggests new programmes that it has recorded for us and the mobile phone emails us the latest weekly health profile with suggestions of what we ought to change.

In medicine the doctor gets a second opinion from a system with artificial intelligence and the robot tidies up and puts away the dishes while we are at work. For all this, intelligent systems are needed; in artificial intelligence you not only learn about programming computer systems but you learn to program systems that are “intelligent”, learn, improve over time and adapt to the surroundings - qualities that are becoming more and more important in the innovative products of the future.

There are several researchers, teachers and doctoral students among us who participate in teaching and assist as supervisors. Intelligent Sensor Systems is a prioritised area at Mälardalen University, in which artificial intelligence has a key role.

If you are interested in designing and developing the “smart” gadgets of the future for the home, on the road, in health care and in industry, artificial intelligence is the choice for you. You will of course also learn everything necessary for building software systems, programming, project management, developing prototypes and working together in project groups. The knowledge you will acquire will equip you well for a professional career and for taking part in the development of the innovative products of the future, and you will possess knowledge which is in demand and appreciated on the labour market.
